A member asked:

Will adding a whey protein shake to your meal containing carbs help keep blood sugar levels in check? or will the spike be about the same (or worse)?

It will help: There will likely be a small amount of leveling done in respect to your blood sugar. You will likely feel full for longer, though, triggering you to eat less and have less cravings later. If you really want to even out the spike, add fiber to your shake. Cheers!
